If you really want to upgrade, the proper way would be to:

1. Build up a test system and test the hardware.
2. Install CentOS 6.
3. Install the needed packages.
4. Configure it the way you need it.
5. Test it for a reasonable time period.

Then migrate the production system. Never make any untested changes to your production system, chances are high that you will fail.

you don't *NEED* to but if you are a professional systems administrator who takes their role seriously, then you would leave it or rebuild it.

Absolutely; there's a reason why RH does NOT support in-place upgrades across major versions ie 5.x => 6.x
